makes complete sense, tubes can get alarmingly big when you blow them up for punctures..
now; where do i source tyres if these ones are shot?

The tube size written on the box has no impact on the function of the tube itself. As long as you do not need to stretch the tube to get it to fit over the rim (likewise you do not want it to need to be folded over itself to get it inside the tyre), you can readily go with a smaller/larger tube without problem. To better understand, simply inflate a tube on its own, it will inflate to many times the original size and well beyond the tire diameter indicated on the box or on the tube itself. For the most part it will also maintain the exact same pucture resistance.
